for reelection. >> unapologetically liberal. >> congressman paul ryan is a guy who believes the country is made up of makers and takers. that's what he said. it's no surprise he didn't like the president's speech. >> the president is a proud and confident liberal progressive. he invoked the constitution and the declaration at times, which are something that everybody likes to hear, especially conservatives. but he invoked them as a means to sort of legitimize the agenda that he has going forward, which was fairly partisan, very ideological for sure, and, you know, it didn't surprise me that he did that, because he is basically saying i'm a liberal, and i'm going to govern as a liberal, and i won. so there. >> the mayor of cable tv believes it's proof that america will be torn apart. >> rather than focusing on america's problems like exploding debt and a weak economy, mr. obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be impose social justice. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice, no matter what happens to

or paul ryan, you would have between a 25 to 30-year difference in age between these candidates. >> yeah, she turns 69 in 2016, he will be 74. >> and both rubio and ryan were born in '70 and '70, respective. you could have a two-generation difference if it were rubio against biden. and for a country moving forward, i think that's going to be a very, very difficult sell, if it never comes out in a campaign. >> or will it be, margie, experience matters? >> i think there's a lot more to how young voters make their decision other than the age of the candidates. and certainly, both vice president biden and secretary clinton bring so much to the table in terms of reaching out to younger voters, latinos, women, all of the various demographic groups that republicans have really, really struggled with over the last few elections and are likely to continue to have a struggle with. and vice president biden, you know, he was able to make the swearing in look cool, after his great vice presidential debate and his work on the fiscal cliff. so, you know, he's able to connect with voters and re

talk to you about your big interview and the republican party coming up with paul ryan on "meet the press." there is breaking news also today. pete williams, the appeals court in d.c., the court right below the supreme court has delivered a big setback to the president on recessed appointments, and these are big recess appointments. sdhoo these are the controversial ones the president made a year ago to richard coregray to run the new consumer protection board and for three people to be on the national labor relations board. all were recess appointments. you may remember this big fight between the president and congress. we come in every day and say we're iffing to be back tomorrow, and the president said that's a sham. you're in recess. i can do these recess appointments. the appeals court said wrong on both counts, mr. president. they said, first of all, the constitution says these can be made during the recess. not a recess. that's a break between one session of congress and the other. the president can only appoint someone when a recess arises. they say the whole point of this r

scheduled to testify. congressman paul ryan sat down for his first sunday talk show appearance since the 2012 election. the congressman told "meet the press" moderator david gregory that it's premature to talk about whether he will run for president in 2016. >> i've got an important job to do. i represent wisconsin. i'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. i think can i do my job representing the people that i work for by focusing on that right now than focusing on these distant things. >> and there's this, a new anti-chuck hagel ad has just popped up days before senate hearings are set to start on his nomination as defense secretary. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and from the left are all organizing to block hagel's nomination. first though shame on you, barack obama. it was one of hillary clinton's most notorious quotes when challenging her 2008 democratic opponent, then candidate obama later shot back calling his opponent, quote, likable enough. the two have come a lon

. >> and when you see that 9%, on what is the paul ryan, the no exceptions position on abortion, the abortion that was held by all of those crazy republicans who tried to justify it this year by saying things like, well, you know in rape, the female body has defenses against pregnancy and rape, and all that nutty stuff. that view is held by 9% of the population, which is an impossible electoral position for the republican party. >> that is what i think, and that is what they are saying at the planned parenthood. they are so out of step, these representatives across the country, they are so out of step on women and women's health care access. what we saw in the election, this extreme position on women's health, overturning roe v. wade, getting rid of planned parenthood. that probably cost him the election, certainly with women and younger voters. and i think it will cost other folks, as well. >> and the polling is showing an expanding favorability for abortion rights, and republicans always do this. it is never confused with abortion. they pretend that women when they come to this cho

patron saint of paul ryan. that's what they spent inauguration day doing. good luck with that. right after the election this year, after insisting publicly over and over again that there was no need to strip union rights in the state of michigan, michigan republicans, surprise, passed a bill doing just that, and governor rick snyder signed it. the whole thing was opened, passed, and shut within a week, never mind what we said before, we're doing it. surprise. michigan is amazing, right? i mean michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this new one can't be ki
